Euro Cup Nails!

Brace yourselves, everyone, I'm trying to be timely and relevant! This is quite the stretch for me so bear with me.  I'm even going to talk about sports *gasp*.  Anyway, in an attempt to get my bf interested in my blog, I occasionally make him challenge me with a design.  His brilliant idea?  The Euro Cup, with the soccer and whatnot.  Sure thing, says I, flags it is!

First up, I started with two coats of Joe Fresh White.  I wanted a nice solid base to start on and that was closest so that'll do.  I started with my thumb by painting on a tiny pentagon somewhere in the middle with my new tiny brush, using black polish.  I then drew out the rest of the lines and pentagons and it actually turned out ok.  Encouraged by a decent start, I then moved on to the flags.  I free-handed them all as taping gets risky, with the base colour.  Colours will be listed below.








The Verdict: I'm kinda proud of myself with how well this turned out.  It's like I have control over a brush and am relevant to world events, all at once yay!

Colours Used:

  • Green: Revlon Posh
  • Yellow: mixture of American Apparel Neon Yellow and Sunshine State
  • Red: Sally Hansen Cherry Red
  • Black: misc Australian brand
  • White: Joe Fresh White

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
